@Dixavd: The processor in this system could have a core speed of anywhere between 2.4GHZ and 4.15GHZ and it may have anywhere between 4 and 8 cores. That gives a very broad range of where the processor could sit, and there isn't really any information about the GPU.

@Dixavd:

There are no specs on that website just the name of the processor and gpu

I think that they need to bring back some button mashing I use to watch this every time a new one was posted

Rumors are that PS4 may be able to output at 2160p. That means nothing right now, but in 2005 less then 25% of people in the us owned an HDTV, and about 20% of those people had a 1080p, but PS3 still shipped with the ability to natively output 1080p. If next gen consoles do end up being able to ouput 2160p then that means that in five years we could be sitting in front of a 2160p tv playing 3D games similar to 3DS without the need for 3D glasses.

Outputting at 2160p (4K) isn't the same as rendering at 4K, odd's are even at that level of output they will simply scale a 1080p image out. The amount of horse power it takes to render at 2160/60hz only barely exists now, and that's using the same level of assets that current technology can handle.

I know that it is pretty far off right now, but it has been done before I believe it was at CES 2010 or 2011 where they linked 4 PS3's together to turn Gran Turisimo 5 into a 3d game without glasses. It is possible that they will pack PS4 with the enough horse power to do that. PS3 only has 512 megs of ram, so getting that 4X more would not be hard. The problem they will run into is advancing the CPU enough. I expect them to pack as much as they can into the next batch of consoles. This way they can prolong the next generation past the traditional 5 year life cycle again. It is also very unlikely that we will see a new Xbox or Playstation until 2013, and by then technology may have advanced enough to allow the amount of horse power needed for 2160p to be put into a console. When PS3 launched it cost sony 900 dollars to build a PS3, and I expect they will do something similar for the next gen console.

I think you are a younger gamer that hasn't seen to many generation switches. Go play Final Fantasy VI on a snes emulator and then go and play Final Fantasy III on a NES emulator and then try and tell me that SNES to NES was not a huge leap in graphics, sound, and gameplay. Every generation is a huge leap it just take time for leap to show itself. There are early 360 games that look graphically worse then late ps2 games. When the new consoles come out the games are not going to be drastically different, but I guarantee that five years down the line what you will be playing then will be completely different from what we are playing now. It has been seven years since there have been knew consoles this is probably going to be one of the biggest leaps we have seen. Rumors are that PS4 may be able to output at 2160p. That means nothing right now, but in 2005 less then 25% of people in the us owned an HDTV, and about 20% of those people had a 1080p, but PS3 still shipped with the ability to natively output 1080p. If next gen consoles do end up being able to ouput 2160p then that means that in five years we could be sitting in front of a 2160p tv playing 3D games similar to 3DS without the need for 3D glasses.

Moore's law has also continued to work for the last seven years. Remember how the 400 dollar 360 launched with a 20 gig HDD? Now you can buy a 4 terrabyte HDD The next consoles will not launch with a 4 TB HDD but it is a very nice indication on how much computing power has grown, since our current gen launched. You can buy an android phone that is more powerful then both an Xbox 360, and a PS3. I think we are about to see a huge leap in video games.

This is coming from someone that said the same thing you said in your blog in 2005. I also dont think we will ever see a decline in the jumps in between generations until moore's law stop working.

WHATEVER, GUYS. Final Fantasy V is awesome. The story barely has a pulse, but it has some memorable moments, and the job system is among the greatest things to ever happen in a JRPG. Final Fantasy V will keep you busy for a long time.

FF V is the only final fantasy I have put a serious effort into, but never finished. I ended up getting FF XIII when I was about two thirds through it, and that kind of took all of my attention. I do not understand the hate that game seams to have generated in this thread. It wasn't that terrible I do not think it is as good as IV or VI, but those are two of the best games ever made. Not every Final Fantasy can be the best game ever made.

Oh and I picked Golden Sun, and I am already 8 hours into. It's pretty cool thanks for the recommendations.

To much JRPG I need a break from them. There is only a certain amount of JRPG I can do at a time, and I am really beginning to want to play a game that doesnt take 30 hours to see the ending of.

I think that's a good plan. I run into RPG burnout issues myself if I do too many in a row.

anyway didn't realize you had played all those games as I didn't see them in your list, my apologies. Hope you have fun with Golden Sun!

That list is just what I have finished I have played all of those games never managed to finish any of them, but some day it will be done.

I'M RELIVING MY CHILDHOOD THROUGH YOU

You are making me wish I was a child, then I would have time to play all of these.

Chronotrigger is a sad omission from your list. If you liked FFVI you'll really enjoy it (FFVI is my favorite of the series).

Plus you are missing some great Zelda Game boy games (I see you've played other Zelda titles

Oracle and Ages and Oracle of Seasons if played together is pretty special.

Minish Cap is pretty solid.

Link's Awakening is one of the very best Zelda games of all time.

I don't see any Fire emblem or Advance Wars games on your list. Can't go wrong there either.

EDIT: nevermind I see you've picked Golden Sun. That's a good choice too.

I have played all of those games besides Chronotrigger, and I am probably going to finish them all at some point it is just a matter of when. I'm going to play golden sun then I think I am going to take a break from JRPGS for a little bit. Golden Sun will be 3 JRPGS in a row, and that is enough for a little bit, but when I go back to JRPGS I will probably do Chronotrigger right away.

Go. Now! go play Chrono Trigger! I would also recommend Legend of Mana, Secret of Mana and Secret of Evermore!

Edit:

Also, Wild Arms 1 + 2 , Legend of Legaia, Saga Frontier 1 + 2

To much JRPG I need a break from them. There is only a certain amount of JRPG I can do at a time, and I am really beginning to want to play a game that doesnt take 30 hours to see the ending of.
